National Register Program

April Town Meeting Approves Article 34, Funding for National Historic District Preservation Planner
Thank You for supporting Historic Preservation in Southborough! 

Why is the Southborough Historical Commission in favor of a National Register Historic District?

The Southborough Historical Commission (SHC) is excited to announce a proposal to create a National Register Historic District (NRHD) in the Main Street area downtown.

SHC believes it is perfect time to recognize the historic importance of Southborough’s downtown Main Street area, which has a precious collection of historic buildings, including houses, two churches, municipal buildings, commercial buildings, a renowned private school and the Town Common.

NRHD is a purely honorary designation, and DOES NOT impose ANY restrictions on property owners, it is therefore an ideal way to foster a sense of community pride in Southborough.

​In a nutshell, a National Register Historic District in Southborough will provide All Upside — No Downside.

What’s the difference between a National Register District and a local Historic District?
